The 13th May saw the launch of ‘Portfolio Landlords Week’ hosted by the property discussion forum PropertyTribes.com and supported by Less Tax 4 Landlords. The aim of the week was to throw a spotlight on Portfolio Landlords and in particular look at why there is a widening gap between small landlords (fewer than 3 properties) and portfolio landlords (4 or more properties) in many areas including tax, finance, and mindset.

During the week, Property Tribes covered many topics and asked industry experts to comment and give their opinion on why the Private Rented Sector is experiencing this shift in trend.  They also interviewed landlords who were happy to share their experiences and talk about the journey they had been on to get them to where they are today i.e. successful and professional landlords with a portfolio of properties.

The week covered the below topics:-

MondayLaunch of “Portfolio Landlords Week” with Tony Gimple of Less Tax for Landlords and an interview with Robert, a portfolio landlord based on the south coast to hear about his property journey.

Tuesday Finance for portfolio landlords with Shawbrook Bank and Property Tribes Financial Services.
